While joining forces with media mogul Ryan Seacrest, Ludacris will host TV’s newest music competition show powered by YouTube called ‘Best.Cover.Ever.’
Additionally, with Seacrest serving as executive producer, Luda also gains producer credits for the competition series featuring aspiring artists from across the globe; who’ll essentially be going head-to-head to perform alongside one of America’s biggest pop stars.
The show’s objective includes a team filtering through thousands of song covers; leaving the track’s actual artist to then pick two finalists who’ll then compete on the series to win the grand prize.
As a result of Luda and Seacrest getting together, the series presents itself as a very lucrative opportunity for rising artists across the world to utilize the world wide web’s largest platforms — YouTube.
Furthermore, Luda tells XXL:
“When you get to a certain place in the industry, you want to create avenues and opportunities for other artists the same way that I had.”
In addition, the rap veteran explains that he’s most interested in seeing the versatility of the artists; essentially how they can alter and create their own renditions of various songs.
“You could have a rap song and somebody change it into a country song, and an EDM song and somebody change it into an R&B song.”
Moreover, Luda let’s us in on who we can expect to hear on the show including: Demi Lovato, Keith Urban, Katy Perry and Backstreet Boys.
Also, if he had things his way, he jokes:
“[I’d] love for a girl to cover [“What’s Your Fantasy”] ’cause it’s a bunch of nasty things being said.”
So, if you’re interested in catching the newest music competition series, tune into the Best.Cover.Ever YouTube channel here today (Nov. 20) at 1 p.m./4 p.m. ET.
